When I was living in Seattle, my niece told me that I should start blogging. Very logical, since I was the only one of the family who didn't live in California and it would be a way for them to keep track of what I was doing. I'm pretty sure that they have all forgotten my blog (with good reason, it even bores me to read it sometimes, although it is a lot of fun to write), and that's perfectly fine with me. So the test is - I have a chance to go to my non French grandparent's homeland, the Czech Republic, the last week of this month. I'm not going to call any of them until after I get home, but if one of my family either call or write me about this exciting trip this week, they will have a treat brought back for them from Prague. I love them and would be bringing back mementos for all, but they don't make suitcases big enough for my 6 brothers and sisters, their fabulous spouses, and the 30 or so nieces and nephews to all be shopped for.
